A message from IGGVA:
“Businesses and individuals alike are all struggling to find our new normal in a post-COVID-19 environment. IGGVA’s board of directors recognizes that there are individuals and families in dire need of help right now to provide food for their families. We wanted to support another non-profit with this fundraiser, and I can’t think of a better partner than Feeding Illinois – and the 8 food banks that they support.” Peggy Harmston, IGGVA President.
A message from our friends at Feeding Illinois:
During this extraordinarily challenging time, the eight (Feeding America) food banks and their local networks of community agencies that serve Illinois are working relentlessly to ensure that nobody in our local communities goes hungry,” said Steve Ericson, Executive Director for Feeding Illinois. “The need for food and nutrition is growing exponentially due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic effects. “Thank you” to the Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Alliance for partnering to help residents in need across our state. Support from agricultural industries and groups such as theirs is sincerely appreciated and will have an immediate impact.
